In a recent interview with Fox News, Viktor Shokin, the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine, made explosive claims about his dismissal from office and alleged corruption involving Joe and Hunter Biden. Shokin stated that he was fired because he was investigating Burisma, an energy company where Hunter Biden served on the board. He believes that both Joe and Hunter Biden were involved in bribery, and that Biden gave away $1 billion in U.S. money in exchange for his firing.
Shokin’s interview comes after recent testimony from Devon Archer, which has renewed interest in the allegations against the Bidens. Shokin’s video response addresses several key points, including the assertion that his investigations into Burisma were dormant. He refutes this claim, stating that his investigations were active and even led to the seizure of assets from Burisma’s owner.
Shokin also claims that the U.S. intelligence agencies were closely monitoring the investigation process, and that Biden was aware of the progress being made. He believes that Biden orchestrated his removal to protect his son and others close to him from the potential consequences of the investigation.
The allegations against the Bidens center around Burisma’s pressure on Hunter Biden to lobby for assistance in dealing with Shokin’s investigation. Hunter was reportedly paid $83,000 per month to serve on the board of Burisma and had access to his father, who was then the Vice President. Biden is accused of receiving a $10 million bribe from Burisma in exchange for stopping the investigation, and of threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid to Ukraine if Shokin was not fired.
Video footage from 2018 shows Joe Biden bragging about how he pressured Ukraine to fire Shokin. Biden admits that he told the Ukrainian government that they would not receive U.S. aid unless Shokin was fired, and says, “Well, son of a b*tch. He got fired.”
Devon Archer, who has testified under oath, confirms that Burisma pressured Hunter Biden to convince his father to shut down the investigation. In 2020, Shokin filed an official complaint against Joe Biden for interference in Ukraine’s legal proceedings. He also claims to have been poisoned with mercury while in Greece, and suggests that Biden may have been involved.
Shokin’s allegations have led to criminal proceedings being launched against Biden in Ukraine. He has appealed to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to take action against Biden, and has criticized Ukrainian law enforcement for their unwillingness to investigate the case.
During the interview, Shokin maintained that the investigation was focused on the violation of the law by Burisma, but that as they delved deeper, they began to suspect that Hunter Biden and others may also be involved. He denies any wrongdoing on his part and challenges anyone to provide evidence of his corruption.
Shokin insists that Biden and other institutions such as the IMF and the EU wanted him gone, but he has yet to see any concrete evidence of his alleged corruption. He asserts that he was not pursuing any political goals in his investigations and claims to have received support from ambassadors, including Ambassador Pyatt.
These allegations against the Bidens have been the subject of ongoing controversy and investigations. Shokin’s interview provides further insight into his perspective and raises questions about the motivations behind his dismissal and the actions of the Bidens. The full interview is set to air on Fox News on Saturday at 8 p.m.
